Free College is possible thanks to the early support and enthusiasm of AFSCME, who entered into a collaboration with Eastern Gateway Community College in 2016. Since 2016, thousands of students have taken advantage of millions of dollars in Free College scholarships.

CWA Members: In response to your questions, CWA inquired about the status of the day after Thanksgiving. Governor Murphy will not be signing an Executive Order to close the State of NJ this Friday for non-essential employees. We are sharing this information so all members are aware.
While it has been 10 years since a Governor has closed on the day after Thanksgiving, we disagree with this decision. We had hoped that members would be able to enjoy time with their families without the use of personal leave time. We have discussed with the Governor’s office, and we expect Departments will soon be notified, that requests for time off will be granted as liberally as possible.
Although we have never before had the day after Thanksgiving off as part of our Contract, we will bring this matter up at the bargaining table. However, we continue to believe that the day after Thanksgiving should be a day when the State is closed as a matter of policy and are unwilling to trade any of our existing holidays for this day.
We wish you and your family a happy, healthy and safe holiday.
